More Information

The Murphy Institute and the Institute for Corruption Studies will host the fourth Political Economy of Corruption conference on May 5th and 6th, 2023.  We invite paper proposals on corruption and growth; measuring corruption; the relationship between corruption, income inequality, and poverty; corruption and racial inequities; corruption and environmental degradation; voter participation and corruption; and more.  Conference papers will contribute to a special issue of Southern Economic Journal.  The conference will bring together a global, interdisciplinary network of scholars across social science and law in order to foster collaboration on corruption research.  While this will be a small, roundtable-style conference, we invite local scholars to participate in the days' events.

The Murphy Institute

Established in memory of Charles H. Murphy, Sr. (1870-1954), and inspired by the vision of Charles H. Murphy, Jr. (1920-2002), The Murphy Institute exists to help Tulane faculty and students understand economic, moral, and political problems we all face and think about. More important, it exists to help us understand how these problems have come to be so closely interconnected.
